Lark in the Park has been awarded £1000 in the Lloyds Bank Community Fund 2014 in
the Hastings Community.
Following votes from members of the public Lark in the Park has been awarded a
grant from Lloyds Bank to enable it to continue doing good work in the community.
- Lark in the Park – Stephanie’s House
- What it does: Provision of a holiday home to enable families who have children with
special needs access to a holiday, but to not be too far from home.
- The difference it will make: This can be a stepping stone to enabling the child to be
able to deal with new situations easier, the child can also benefit from being part of a
small community atmosphere. This in turn reflects on their outlook on returning
from the holiday. It also benefits the family to be able to enjoy a holiday, something
that may well have been impossible before due to traveling distances, new places,
cost etc. Having a holiday close to home means that if it is all not going too well for
the child with special needs, then home isn’t too far away.
